So helpful, make it your first stop!
Oct 2019 • Solo
This place is amazing! Make it your first stop if you are traveling through. The help I received and sites shown on clear maps was super helpful, the staff recommended a number of sites both in town and on the way back to where I was staying that would have been missed otherwise. The sites related to Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds” were clearly indicated as were restaurant locations. I hit them all and was extremely satisfied with my experience in Bodega Bay!

So helpful
Jul 2019
The volunteer had only been there a few weeks. She was more than helpful with places and suggestions we hadn't found in our research. She took us out to the back patio so we could see all the pelicans and other birds. Maps, a bathroom (after a 2 hour drive, it was wonderful to find), lots of brochures, and artwork.

We made this our first stop in Bodega over the weekend. Very knowledgeable guy greeted us and answered every question we had. They have lots of brochures on the sites you should visit. He even provided an update on current highway 1 road lane closures. Thanks!

A Worthwhile Stop
May 2019 • Couples
This is a worthwhile stop for those visitors who are unfamiliar with the area. The person showcased a great deal of pride and knowledge of the area. A recommendation when suggesting restaurants centers on asking the visitor if anyone in the party has dietary restrictions like gluten because the person went on-and-on about a bunch of restaurants I don’t have any interest in. Overall, we did get a few ideas about the area. The parking lot is tight, and the turn comes up fast. The GPS is off by a little bit.

Please consider the needs of your female visitors and their rights for privacy when using the restroom
Oct 2018 • Friends
The visitors center has one public bathroom. This bathroom has two large uncovered windows—. O shades, no curtains, no frosted glass. Any female using the bathroom must sit facing these uncovered windows which are at toilet level and in direct view of windows in buildings across from the visitors center. There is no privacy. If you want to use a bathroom where you cannot be watched by someone outside, skip this place. I ended up leaving and finding a coffee shop with a bathroom that afforded privacy

Thank you for your comment. We are in a new location and window coverage will be addressed. There is currently complete privacy afforded by shrubbery even though those in the bathroom can see out.

Bodega Bay Vacation
Aug 2018 • Couples
We stopped in Bodega Bay while vacationing in California. We had little information on this destination so we visited the Visitor Center. Kara provided us with maps, a wealth of information and suggestions for us since we only had one day to tour the area. I highly recommend taking a few minutes to visit the center. We went from not having any plans for the day to a fun packed day.

Thank you Kara.

One-Stop Shopping for Things to Do
Jul 2018 • Family
O.K., so you come to Bodega Bay and, other than knowing about Alfred Hitchcock's1960's filming of "The Bird's", what else if there to do? Well, be prepared to be overwhelmed by all the local sites and activities, as well as in all of Sonoma County The Visitor's Center, of course, is your starting place!
